Performance

Wireless Performance Explained

Advertised Speed of 5Ghz band

Theoretical 802.11ac speed on 5Ghz band (using 80Mhz channel, 64-QAM, 400 ns GI):

  • 2 spatial streams x 325 mbps/stream = 650 mbps
  • NOTE: Netgear advertises 700 mbps?? This is not part of spec. I’m guessing Netgear decided to round up to nearest 100 mbps.

Warning

This is classified as a “Low-Performer” 802.11ac wifi system. If higher performance is needed, consider upgrading to a “Top-Performer”. Read: What’s the fastest 802.11ac (wifi5) wifi system possible?
